A self proclaimed “enamel hugger”, Dr. Carrie is honored to help her patients attain a high level of health, beauty and well-being. She states, “My goal for all of my patients is to help them understand all of their options. I talk with every one of my patients about their health, their needs, their busy lives and their financial concerns and we find solutions together that suit each individual patient”.
If you hear singing, it is no doubt Dr. Carrie serenading the children who grace her chair. It not only calms our kiddos but in many cases you will hear the children humming along as they are coached through their appointments. Her repertoire ranges from Sesame Street songs to Star Wars’s Imperial March depending on the song requests of her patient.
Born in Evanston, Illinois, Dr. Carrie lived North of Chicago throughout her youth.
